Pineapple cheek conures


    Pineapple green cheek conures are a mutated variation of the green cheek conure. They have a tan-colored head, yellow sides, and lime green back feathers. The chest has a mixture of bright red and yellow feathers. The lower beak appears reddish-orange, with a hint of red above the cere. Like yellow-sides conures, pineapples have tail feathers ranging from light red to maroon. Their eyes are ruby red.

    As described by the American Federation of Aviculture, pineapple green cheek conures first came about after breeders mixed opaline green cheeks and cinnamon conures. The Californian Steve Garvin, who created the first one, named the bird after a fruit, thus giving it its “pineapple” moniker
